Who is the goalie?

I'm following the LA Kings since few weeks and i don't understand the goalers rotations...

For the rest of the season, what percentage Quick and Bernier will be use?

Quick is the #1 goaler.

Bernier is the #2 goaler.

Murray doesn't want to overwork Quick down the stretch like he did last year which led to him falling apart in the final games of our series against the Canucks.

Since a lot of our games have been every other day, Murray is using the back-and-forth method and it's been working so far. I expect Bernier to start in Nashville to end the road trip and then Quick back in LA for the St. Louis game on Thursday.

I would want Quick against Anaheim.

I wouldn't be surprised if Bernier started Thursday too or if Quick started Thursday and Saturday.

...but for the rest of the season kind of Quick 66%/Bernier 33% ?

What do you think?

No one knows. Terry Murray is a man no one can fully understand.

What do you think?
Normally throughout the season, I'd say your percentages are right, but in the last several weeks/month, Murray has rotated them every other game. I believe the last week to two of the season, Quick will see a lot of the starts going into the the playoffs (if we make it), but leading up to that, I believe it will continue with a constant rotation. Recently, it doesn't matter how well each goalie starts in their game. He starts the other the next (see Bernier's shutout against Phoenix and Quick's recent game against Detroit).

... Unless one shows himself to be clearly better or worse than the other, Quick and Bernier should split the games. And (so far anyway) that's what Murray is doing.

Eventually, THE goalie will be the guy that wins THE playoff games.

I think Jonathan will get most of the starts.

This. I would start Bernier against non-Pacific teams, and save Quick for the 4-pt games.

They will probably go 60/40(Quick/ Bernier) the rest of the way until the playoffs. Once the playoff starts, it will be Quick until a team takes advantage of his puck handling.
This will be the only reason why Bernier gets games in the playoffs. If Quick does well in this regard then he will continue to play, if not, then expect Bernier to see time.
Quick is the weaker of the two at puck handling and could prove a factor in winning or losing a series.
If Murray didn't think there was a chance of Bernier playing in the Playoffs, then he wouldn't be playing now.
Though I just hope we win though whoever is in net!
